EtymologyThe specific epithet, “vescolineata”, is derived from the Latin adjective ‘vescus’ meaning weak, poor, thin or little and the Latin adjective ‘lineata’ meaning lined. This is in reference to the weak and obscure pale lines of this species in comparison to the usually bolder pale lines of its sister taxon D. impar.
